Lent: On the way…
The Lamb, on way to slaughter,
Heard a cry and paused to see
A woman, bent quite out of shape,
Grounded in defeat.
This Lamb, a Shepherd, too, by trade,
Strode into sinagogue;
Called, touched, and healed desperate one,
Who’d lived a life so mocked.
While anger swirled ’bout our King,
Lamb, yet Shepherd strong,
Christ reveled in her standing praise,
She joins pure hearts in song:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
To receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength,
And honor and glory and praise!”
